New Holland Brewing Co. (Holland, Michigan) has announced that it will officially release its 20th Anniversary Ale on Black Friday – November 24th, 2017.
Just as they should, the guys and gals at New Holland Brewing Co. are going big later this month with an incredibly special bottle release that will commemorate their 20th year in the brewing industry. And by “big”, we mean 20% ABV big. That’s right, their 20th Anniversary Ale is a 20% ABV American Strong Ale that has been aged in “rum barrels for almost a year.” Although that ABV number may be a bit intimidating, the folks at the brewery promise that “this brew is smooth and warming with notes of vanilla and the spice of rum.”
“For the past 20 years, New Holland has worked hard to create remarkable beers for our customers to enjoy,” says New Holland President and Founder, Brett VanderKamp. “Each brew is thoughtfully crafted, inspired by the stories around us, and this 20th Anniversary Ale is no exception.”
20th Anniversary Ale will officially release on Black Friday – November 24, and will be available in “extremely limited” quantities of wax-dipped 22 oz. bottles that will only see distribution to “select retailers in Michigan.” New Holland’s brewpub locations (Pub on 8th in Holland and The Knickerbocker in Grand Rapids) will also be “offering bottle sales as well as the only draft pours in the nation.” Prost!
